    Exclamation News Regarding the Softmod ANY Wii Guide

    It has come to the attention of the staff here at WiiHacks that some users are experiencing errors in the guide during the section that has you back up your Wii's NAND.

    To be more specific some users have reported that the "BootMii" option does not appear in their HomeBrew Channel's menu when pressing the HOME button. We believe we have discovered the cause of this issue and are currently working on a revision to the guide which will correct this. We would like to assure our users that the guide is still safe to use regardless of this issue.

    We thank you for your patronage on WiiHacks.com (and donations from those who have done so), as well as your patience while this issue is corrected.

    To add a bit of info, the issue is specific to the use of the hackmii installer v1.1.2 (of which the letterbomb exploit uses), and only applies to people who have had their Wii console modded sometime in the past using a version of the hackmii installer less than 1.1.2. A quick solution to the problem is to use Hackmii 1.1.0 instead.

    This problem very rarely occurs, and like SNES said does not affect the functionality of anything other than making a nand backup with bootmii.

    Issue resolved until the new version of the Guide is released. I just added the following instructions to the letterbomb spoiler:

    3. Uncheck the "Bundle the Hackmii Installer for me!" box.
    You can use the mac address to build a custom hackmii installer at LetterBomb
    MAKE SURE YOU SELECT YOUR REGION up top
    If you get the captcha wrong, it will RESET your region. This happened to me. If you do, the installer, well,
    in my case hung the wii. Had to hard boot it.
    4. Copy downloaded files to root directory of SD card. I used windows xp. Now download hackmii_1.1.0.zip and extract the boot.elf file directly to the root of your SD card.
